    Hi peeps,

    I have a brick building/shed in my garden which has a flat roof but I would like to change it into a pent roof. I have the roof frame in mind but not too sure what size timber to use.
    Building is not big it’s approx 6x1.
    Thank you

    What’s the roof covering? Felt, tile, metal profile etc…

    Sounds more like an alleyway than a building!

    4x2 depending on the span and what is sitting on top of the spars.

    That's if you can fined any timber these days

    Guessing that 6m x 1m and not imperial.
